Many fellow figuring collectors are probably aware of this special figure being made available. For those of you who don’t, read on to see what Good Smile Company has cooked up. (more…)
I’m sitting here staring at my blog as well as reading other blogs this evening. I’m pretty hooked on Anime, Manga and figurines. I have found the Internet to be a dangerous things when it comes to locating awesome, cool and kawaii things related to Anime. Of course, I would have to get more addicted to perhaps the more costly of Otaku items, figurines. I’ve looked at other collectibles and there are a few I would not mind having. Most of the time I forget about them till its to late.
So I’m sitting here thinking that I don’t really let people I work with know much about my collection of figurines. Maybe one or two but that is about it. I may sneak a small one into the office some time to show off but usually that does not happen. I think if people knew the extent of my collection, they might think me strange. No, I by no means have a collection numbering in the hundreds. Don’t have the funds for that or the space.
What prompted my thoughts on this was my recent delivery of Asuka and Black Rock Shooter. I have yet to unbox them as I have not figured where to store them. I have a corner that is now practically stacked to the ceiling with the boxes. (I should inventory that pile someday) I also have a list that I keep updating with names of the figures that I want to add to the collection. I check the figures online frequently in the hopes that the reservations are not closed before I decide I have enough funds to buy them. It’s a good thing that I have not ventured into collecting Dolfies. I’d have to explain to the kids, sorry, Saber was calling me to rescue her from the store overseas. We’ll eat next month.
I would think it awesome if I met another Anime fan like myself at work so we can trade stories and perhaps collectibles. I hear rumors of one or two around so who knows. I’m happy I get very little ribbing about my Anime addiction. I enjoy watching the occasional episode during lunch at my desk. Maybe I should pull out an episode or two of Yosuga no Sora?
Well, I guess for now, I’ll remain in the closet for the most part regarding my figurine collection. Sorry girls, I’ll introduce you to the guys at work another day.
To accompany Yuri, Good Smile Company has also released an edition of Tenshi, also known as the Angel on Angel Beats! This stunning figure captures Tenshi with her wings (which are removable) unfurled smiling. This and the Yuri figure are two I think I will have to add to my collection. I don’t feel I could order one without the other…
Hobby Search is taking reservations now. About ¥5,800 retail.
Morishima sempai is waiting for you… Waiting for you to place a reservation so she can come to your house sometime around April. She knows you’ve been watching Amagami SS and has put on a swimsuit just for you.
This new figure by Max Factory features the sometimes flighty Morishima Haruka from the Manga and Anime, Amagami SS. She has been sculpted wearing a school swimsuit smiling back at who ever may be looking at her. Her character was one of my favorites in the series, especially her stunning blue eyes. The figure does not have the same bright blue eyes but they are blue.
This figure is available for reservation now at Hobby Search, retail is about ¥6,800.
It never ceases to amaze me just how many versions of the two most known characters from the Evangelion franchise there are. Here is a prime example. In this nice piece done by Kotobukiya, Asuka is a practicing ballerina. It is a great compliment to their other figure of Rei as a ballerina. Since there are two complimenting figurines, it may be difficult to resist getting both as a set.
Asuka can be reserved at Hobby Search today. Retail price is around ¥7,140.
